Smidge™ Sensitive Probiotic (formerly GutPro® capsules)

  • 8-strain formula

  • No prebiotics

  • Contains D-lactate-free strains

  • Compatible with real food diets

  • Non-GMO

  • Free of common allergens

A super clean, potent and therapeutic-grade probiotic for on-the-go. Smidge™ Sensitive Probiotic comes in a convenient little oral capsule, with the same GutPro® formula that's been a staple in your carry-on:

Eight strains of beneficial bacteria that are essential for digestive health,
without the strains that can irritate folks with sensitive digestive systems.

We omitted certain strains found in commercial probiotics that can cause histamine intolerance, d-lactic acidosis and other potential reactions.

You also won't find common allergens or unnecessary ingredients. Another plus? No prebiotics, like inulin or maltodextrin.

After decades of research and feedback from practitioners, scientists, professionals and those with a vested interest in intestinal health, we formulated this blend to help restore digestion and elimination while aiding in the breakdown and assimilation of nutrients. So you can garner all of the benefits from these powerful, small-batch probiotic capsules.

And because the capsules are less condensed than the powder, they're ideal for those just starting probiotics. They're also great for travel!

What do Smidge™ Sensitive Probiotic capsules do?

How do our customers love Smidge™ Sensitive Probiotic capsules? Let us count the ways ;)

These little capsules contain eight clinically-proven strains of probiotics for gut health (7 human strains and one plant-based strain):

  • L. gasseri

  • L. salivarius

  • B. bifidum

  • B. breve

  • B. infantis

  • B. longum

  • B. lactis

  • L. plantarum, the plant strain

Studies show the strains in this blend can help kick start the digestive system, maximize the absorption of nutrients from your yummy real food diet, and ultimately, support the entire immune system.*

Here are some of the key, scientifically-backed health benefits of these strains (more info and sources in our ingredients section):

  • They support comfy, healthy digestion, including minimizing gas, bloating and abdominal pain; helping to digest challenging foods, establishing healthy gut bacteria and maintaining regularity by easing constipation and occasional diarrhea.*

  • They support microvilli in the production and synthesis of vitamins, especially B vitamins that include folate, biotin, thiamine, nicotinic acid, pyridoxine, riboflavin and B12.*

  • They regulate and strengthen the immune system.*

  • They keep inflammation in check.*

  • They support a buoyant mood and clear mind.*

  • They promote smooth, healthy skin.*

  • And they may even support the teeth and your oral health.*

This formula is also ideal for people who are embarking on their health journeys or taking their first bites in dietary protocols, like:

GAPS, SIBO, Body Ecology,
Autism/PDD-NOS, PANDA/PANS,
Paleo, AIP, Ketogenic,
Gluten-free, soy-free and casein-free.

(Please note that while this probiotic may be suitable for people on these diets, we do not claim it cures the health conditions that prompt the diets.)

Athletes, biohackers and people passionate about real food also use our Sensitive Probiotic capsules as an integral part of their wellness routines. We've even heard from happy customers who take it as part of their beauty regimens, for glowing skin and hair.*

Dosage:

Adults: Always start with a smidge! Start with one capsule daily with food. Then take two capsules together, or as directed by a certified healthcare practitioner. (See "low and slow" note below).

Children: Take one capsule daily with food.

For sensitive adults and children: A smaller dose may be obtained by pulling apart the capsule and taking a portion of the contents.

Start low and slow: Our supplements are premium, pure and potent. Therefore, it's critically important to start slowly, with a lower dosage than recommended. For example, a minimal dose every other day, or even once a week, until you can determine how the supplement affects your body and what feels right for you.

How to take: For best absorption, we recommend taking your probiotic with a meal or a spoonful of organic fat, like butter, ghee, emu oil or coconut oil. See FAQs for more info.

Storage:

Smidge™ Sensitive Probiotic capsules require refrigeration for long-term storage. They can be kept at room temperature for up to two weeks while traveling. Easy peasy.

Shipping:

We use a combination of shipping services with tracking to best serve our customers. Our goal is to get your package to you in the most efficient manner using the most cost effective method.

Smidge™ probiotics ship Monday through Wednesday using a two-day service. Order by 10 a.m. Wednesday for Friday delivery.

Smidge™ probiotics contain active freeze-dried bacteria, versus live cultures. Unlike live cultures, which can be destroyed in transit by heat, freeze-dried bacteria hold up well in warm weather, as they remain intact and stable with all of their beneficial properties. This means your probiotics will arrive in optimal condition. (Then once you receive your package, you can put them in the fridge.)

We also have an overnight shipping option available Monday through Wednesday.

On supplements for expectant mothers*: And so I recommend eating a diet rich in cultured foods – cultured veggies, kombucha, kefirs, and so on – and also supplementing throughout pregnancy. Which supplement? My personal favorites are … [Smidge™ Sensitive Probiotic]…

I've known these folks for almost a decade now and I trust them implicitly. After working with families of children (that have sensitivities) for close to a decade, Smidge™ worked on developing the purest and cleanest and one of the most powerful probiotics on the market… I only recommend one brand of probiotics that is therapeutic grade and in my opinion, the best probiotic on the market: [Smidge™ Sensitive Probiotic].

On postpartum recovery*: After incorporating these gut-boosting supplements into my routine… my digestive symptoms went back to their normal, pre-pregnancy state within a week (i.e. eliminating regularly). This is SO important for hormone balance, because when we're not regularly excreting waste, toxins and extra estrogen via our bowels they get reabsorbed back into our bloodstream, causing estrogen dominance.

Bifidobacterium infantis

Lactobacillus plantarum

Bifidobacterium bifidum

Bifidobacterium longum

Lactobacillus gasseri

Lactobacillus salivarius

Bifidobacterium breve

Bifidobacterium lactis

Microcrystalline cellulose (base for encapsulation)

Vegetarian capsule

Bifidobacterium infantis

B. infantis is a folate-producing beneficial bacteria, primarily found in the gastrointestinal tracts of healthy infants (and human mouths). It seems to play a critical role in establishing a healthy intestinal lining and a robust and well-regulated immune system.* Research has also linked B. infantis to helping mitigate inflammation in the digestive system and throughout the body, stating that it may reduce the production of inflammatory cytokines.* Research suggests B. infantis regulates the production of tryptophan, which is the precursor for serotonin (the neurotransmitter associated with a sense of satisfaction and happiness).* A note on folate: it's one of the B vitamins responsible for tissue growth and cell function.*

Lactobacillus plantarum

L. plantarum is a plant-based, beneficial probiotic strain naturally found in fermented foods like sauerkraut. Several clinical trials have shown that L. plantarum helps support comfortable digestion, helping to minimize gas and bloating.* One of the most common probiotics, L. plantarum seems to support immune system health.* Not only does L. plantarum stimulate the production of anti-inflammatory cytokines like IL-10, it also seems to stimulate the production of regulatory T-cells.* And, preliminary studies indicate that L. plantarum may help strengthen memory, concentration and mood.*

Bifidobacterium bifidum

Bifidobacteria are a group of bacteria that typically live in the human intestines and stomach, that help to perform essential functions like digestion and the maintenance of beneficial bacteria. One study suggests that B. bifidum may support immunity by staving off colds and touches of the flu in the winter months. Another clinical study indicates B. bifidum may help with abdominal discomfort caused by gas and bloating.* And yet another study states that B. bifidum can help with occasional diarrhea.* Clinical research suggests that B. bifidum can help maintain comfortable joint movement.* There's also a correlation to improved mental health (boosting mood and easing anxiety), as bifidobacterium is classified as a "psychobiotic", which affects central nervous system-related functions and behaviors mediated by the gut-brain-axis.

Bifidobacterium longum

One of the first bacteria to colonize our bodies at birth, B. longum has been associated with helping to digest milk and other challenging foods, as it produces lactic acid from the fermentation of sugar in the gut.* Research suggests that B. longum may support immunity and growth in children.* It's also linked to helping maintain healthy cholesterol levels already within a normal range.* And it's been studied to help alleviate stress.

Lactobacillus gasseri

L. gasseri is naturally found in the human digestive and urinary tracts. It's been shown in clinical trials to help people lose weight.* Preliminary research indicates that L. gasseri may inhibit inflammation signaling at the genetic level.* L. gasseri may also support healthy cholesterol levels already within a normal range.*

Lactobacillus salivarius

L. salivarius is one of the most prevalent probiotic species in human saliva. It produces organic acids, such as lactic acid and acetic acid from carbohydrates. L. salivarius seems to help keep the microbial population in the mouth healthy.* Also, several clinical trials indicate that L. salivarius seems to help support the immune system and, as a result, support healthy skin.* Importantly, researchers state that it may keep the vagina healthy and comfortable by promoting a healthy pH balance.*

Bifidobacterium breve

B. breve is one of the most helpful probiotic bacteria in the human body due to its unique ability to compete with harmful bacteria by digesting a large variety of molecules. It's also prevalent in the colons of breastfed babies. B. breve is linked to helping with occasional constipation in children.* And when combined with a gluten-free (real food) diet, B. breve promotes microbial balance in the digestive tracts of children.* B. breve seems to play a role in helping to establish a healthy microbiome, based on trials involving preterm babies. And, clinical research suggests it may be useful in recolonizing the guts of children who have undergone chemotherapy.*

Bifidobacterium lactis

A transient probiotic bacteria that inhabit the human intestines and the colon, B. lactis breaks down body waste and aids in the absorption of various vitamins and minerals.* One study showed that B. lactis helped preterm babies gain weight and helped develop their immune systems.* Beyond the babies, extensive research has shown that B. lactis is useful when it comes to abdominal comfort and proper digestion, helping to get the colon in shape and making occasional constipation a thing of the past.* Notably, preliminary lab research indicates B. lactis shows exciting potential in neutralizing certain issues associated with wheat.*

Microcrystalline cellulose (base for encapsulation)

Microcrystalline cellulose is all natural refined wood pulp. We chose this ingredient to satisfy the needs of our most sensitive customers.

Vegetarian capsule

Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC), water. Our vegetable (vegan) capsules consist of only two ingredients: HPMC and purified water. HPMC is derived from vegetable cellulose of pine. 100% natural, these capsules contain no preservatives, no gelatin, wheat, animal by-products or starch.

Bifidobacterium infantis

B. infantis is a folate-producing beneficial bacteria, primarily found in the gastrointestinal tracts of healthy infants (and human mouths). It seems to play a critical role in establishing a healthy intestinal lining and a robust and well-regulated immune system.* Research has also linked B. infantis to helping mitigate inflammation in the digestive system and throughout the body, stating that it may reduce the production of inflammatory cytokines.* Research suggests B. infantis regulates the production of tryptophan, which is the precursor for serotonin (the neurotransmitter associated with a sense of satisfaction and happiness).* A note on folate: it's one of the B vitamins responsible for tissue growth and cell function.*

FAQ

What strains and ingredients did you leave out of the formula for people with sensitivities?

We've had customers who've tried a dozen – sometimes as many as 20 – different probiotic formulas. And after years of frustration and despair, they've told us that this formula is the one that finally worked for them. Here's why:

  • No histamine-producing strains (Our Sensitive Probiotic contains only histamine-neutral or histamine-degrading strains of probiotic bacteria)

  • No strains known to contribute to D-lactate acidosis

  • No streptococcus thermophilus or other strains linked to adverse reactions

  • No spore-forming strains of probiotics (e.g. soil bacteria)

  • No inulin, maltodextrin or other prebiotics that can feed pathogens

  • No excipients and other added ingredients, i.e., magnesium stearate, silica, titanium dioxide

  • No common allergens: All strains are grown on a dairy-free, soy-free, vegetarian, non-GMO culture. Does not contain milk/casein, eggs, fish, shellfish, wheat/gluten, peanuts, tree nuts, yeast, corn or soy

What is the difference between your Sensitive Probiotic capsules and the powdered version?

Both Smidge™ Sensitive Probiotic capsules and Sensitive Probiotic powder contain the same formula: the same strains in the same ratios.

The capsules contain cellulose and L-leucine, which is required to keep the powder in capsule form. The capsules have 5 billion CFUs per capsule, allowing for easy titration of doses.

The powder does not contain any additional ingredients at all.

The powder contains 6 trillion CFUs per bottle; the capsules contain 600 billion CFUs per bottle. In other words, one bottle of Smidge™ Sensitive Probiotic Powder is the equivalent to 10 bottles of the capsules. Although the powder costs more upfront, it's more economical in the long run.

Our customers choose the capsules for convenience, whether they have a student in college, are traveling or just want to pop a little pill and run out the door.

For families all using the same probiotic, we recommend Smidge™ Sensitive Probiotic Powder, as you can easily individualize the doses with the cute mini measuring spoon, and because there are more doses of the pure powder.

Can you ship Smidge™ Sensitive Probiotic capsules in hot temperatures?

Yes! Smidge™ Sensitive Probiotic capsules (and all of our probiotics!) can be shipped when it's hot outside. Because it requires refrigeration, we only ship orders Monday through Wednesday using two-day premium shipping services that include tracking. We also have an overnight shipping option. 

Smidge™ probiotics are freeze-dried, so they hold up well to warm temperatures.

What is the best time and way to take my Sensitive Probiotic capsules?

Here's the fun part. We recommend taking your probiotic with a meal (around the same time daily). It's beneficial if the meal also contains some natural, organic fat or oil.

Taking your probiotic with real food provides a buffering system for the supplement and ensures its safe passage through the digestive tract. Food also provides the friendly bacteria in your probiotic the proper nourishment to ensure its survival in your gut.

Our probiotics work best with an ancestral diet: unprocessed foods (meat, vegetables, fruits), healthy fats (olive oil, butter, lard, coconut oil, etc.) and no grains (i.e., no wheat, corn, rice, soy, etc.).

Please avoid taking probiotics with certain foods that may diminish the potency:

  • Avoid chlorinated water.

  • Avoid hot soup and hot beverages (coffee, tea, etc.).

  • Avoid highly processed foods (store-bought juice, sugar, wheat and soy products).

What kind of diet should I eat while on Smidge™ Sensitive Probiotic capsules?

Our probiotics and supplements work best in conjunction with a wholesome, real food diet. Think healthy fats, wild-caught fish, grass-fed meat, organic fruits and vegetables, and the elimination of pesticides, GMOs, additives, preservatives, chemicals and processed sugar/flour. So eat clean and eat up!

How long does one bottle of Smidge™ Sensitive Probiotic capsules last?

At the average adult dose of 2 capsules per day, one bottle will last 30 days.

Is this Sensitive Probiotic free of common allergens?

We wouldn't have it any other way :) Our Sensitive Probiotic capsules are free of common allergens. All strains are grown on a dairy-free, soy-free, vegetarian, non-GMO culture. It does not contain milk/casein, eggs, fish, shellfish, wheat/gluten, peanuts, tree nuts, yeast, corn or soy.

Is it freeze-dried or live?

Smidge™ Probiotics are comprised of freeze-dried bacteria. Old school probiotics contained live cultures that died in transit due to warm temperatures. Freeze-dried bacteria are able to withstand warmer temperatures during transit.

Where are the ingredients in Smidge™ Sensitive Probiotic sourced and where is the supplement made?

The strains in our Sensitive Probiotic capsules are sourced and produced right here in the U.S. :)

How many strains does this formula have?

Smidge™ Sensitive Probiotic capsules have eight clinically-proven strains of probiotics for gut health (7 human strains: L. gasseri, L. salivarius, B. bifidum, B. breve, B. infantis, B. longum, B. lactis; and L. plantarum, a plant-based strain).*

I have histamine intolerance and/or sensitivity to D-lactate. How will this product affect me?

Before starting any new supplement, it's best to first run it by your doctor. But, each of the eight strains in our Sensitive Probiotic powder has extensive research supporting their safety and efficacy in helping to revitalize your entire body.* We also took into account the rate of growth of these strains, so they would help maintain the balance in your gut.* For instance, its histamine- degrading strains balance the histamine-forming strains in the proper ratio.* This way, you can maximize your benefits from probiotics while still minimizing your exposure to D-lactate and histamine.*

Does this probiotic contain prebiotics?

No. Most commercial probiotics are up to 80% prebiotics. This is notable because adding prebiotics reduces the potency of a probiotic supplement and therefore, reduces the cost per bottle. More importantly, we intentionally keep prebiotics separate from our probiotic formulas. We do not (add any additional ingredients), as many of our customers have very sensitive digestive systems or are biohackers who only want purity.

A probiotic can work alone and does not require a prebiotic. Our pure probiotics can colonize without a prebiotic. Additionally, not all people taking a probiotic need a prebiotic. We recommend starting our probiotics without a prebiotic, before determining whether or not to add it to your protocol. We believe it's essential to focus on diet and real food to support the colonization of good gut bacteria.

Here's some additional background regarding our philosophy on prebiotics:

Most commercially available prebiotics are made from FOS/inulin. This starchy, sugary substance is counterproductive to gut health and overall health. There's also a concern that some kinds of yeast can use inulin/FOS for fuel, thereby leading to overactive yeast production in the body.

Overjoyed to have sensitive Probiotics!

We were a loyal monthly customer of Corganic and are overjoyed and relieved that you took over the recipe! I can't explain the behavioral difference of my ASD 9 year old when this product is available to us, it's almost as important to his success as the air we breathe! Who knew a probiotic could make that kind of difference, I've found only 1 other brand that even came close, so thank you for producing this product from the bottom of our hearts!

Great product

I tried another similar probiotic and was very sick. Having zero issues with this. Happy but don’t understand why the shipping is $15!!!! Price of product is good but shipping costs will be a game changer. Especially when others are free. I really hope they change this.

Smidge™

Hello Steven, Thank you for your 4-star review on GutPro [Smidge™ Sensitive Probiotic] capsules. We appreciate your feedback on GutPro [Smidge™ Sensitive Probiotic] capsules. Strains that do not bother histamine intolerance can be costly. Smidge is in the process of streamlining its product line of probiotics, digestive enzymes, and minerals. This means you will see adjustments in the amount of product you’re receiving and to the prices. It also means Smidge will now only be offering one size of each product. You may have noticed these changes already in some of your favorites, such as GutPro [Smidge™ Sensitive Probiotic] and GutPro Infant [Smidge™ Infant Probiotic]. The prices for Smidge supplements had to be increased based on raw material costs and inflation, and we were able to keep that price for 10 years. Our prices for raw materials have increased, and we do not want to use materials that do not meet our quality standards. We apologize for any issues that this has caused. We appreciate your support.
